The independent developers creating the spiritual successor to one of our all-time favorite games is released new video of its Star Wars Squadrons on the Oculus Rift. Squadrons looks to return to the story and combat of Star Wars: TIE Fighter, one of the best Star Wars games ever made.

There are a bunch of amazing space simulation games coming out soon but a serious lack of Star Wars. "There are a few open world space simulator on the market, but we don't want to mine asteroids, stockpiling minerals and trade in a complex market economy," reads the developer's page. "We want a space combat simulator which with a true X-Wing/Tie-Fighter feeling, that respects the Star Wars IP. We want the thrill of emptying our X-Wing or Y-Wing torpedo launchers at an imperial freighter convoy or roll around a Star Destroyer in our unshielded TIE fighter as waves of green laser strike our enemy ships."

Star Wars Squadrons is being developed with a single-player campaign which gamers choose which side of the force to for or to join the pirate forces. Stay tuned for more info.
